Biography
Juan Asensio was born in Cuenca in 1959.

Asensio's initial works were anatomy studies and portraits in clay later reproduced in wood or marble.

He started by displaying his artwork in different collective exhibitions. Soon, however, he abandoned this formative stage to move into a more influential environment at the Museum of Abstract Art in Cuenca. There, he worked in some more abstract pieces with reference to artists such as Oteiza and Brancusi.

In 1987, Asensio moved to Madrid where he started to contact gallerists and critics of the Spanish capital. There, he worked alone at the same time that he collaborated with other artists including Oteiza, Manolo Valdés and Martín Chirino.

Among his early exhibitions in Madrid were those at the Gallery Theo. Gallery that later was closed but continued by one of its founders, Elvira González, as Galería Elvira González. She kept working with the sculptor until now days.

The first geometrical line of work of Juan Asensio evolved with time into a more organic line referring to nature forms. The artist has been presented with the “Ojo Crítico” - the critic eye of the Plastic Arts- and the first award of the XX sculpture of the Box of Madrid, both in 1996. Same year that inaugurates his first exhibition at Galería Elvira González.

Today, his work can be found in museums, art foundations, banks and private collections around the world.
